Got nerd sniped into looking for the highest power draw workload I could get running on a single Oxide sled. Managed to hit 416W. I think I can get it a bit higher but headache pointed out I hadn't eaten dinner and it was dark outside.

I loathe gate valves on water lines.

This tweet brought to you by the gate valve on the non-functional main bathroom shower's hot water line deciding to leak around the handle.

Astrid, 1yr old Corgi, has been picking fights with Poe, 5yr old Corgi. I now have an imprint of Poe's bite on my arm.



The recent arstechnica article ( about the report on Matrix security vulnerabilities revealed disagreement between the researchers and the vendor.

I really wish this wasn't a real story where we got a "root cause analysis" as a 7 slide presentation using the company official template that told us nothing.
